SculptrVR just got a lot prettier!
This update brings glowing and metalic/reflective voxel types to your worlds.

Glowing Voxels
Glowing voxels begin to emit more light as the sun sets and really bloom once the moon rises high! Don’t forget you can change the time of day by pointing your teleport laser at the sun/moon and pulling the trigger.

Metallic/Reflective Voxels
Voxels can now be given a waivy, reflective surface. This works great both as shiny metal and as water.
